Hide, seek, selective leak: Update on Jan. 6 Anderson tapes, by Michelle Malkin
2 weeks back, I presented you to the case of Jan. 6 Capitol rally accused John Steven Anderson, whose legal representative Marina Medvin is defending the release of 30 seconds of an exculpatory Capitol monitoring video that district attorneys don’t desire the general public to see.
There’s a brand-new filing in the event from legal representatives for a press union that likewise desires the video offered openly. The legal representatives explain that the feds consented to launch 4 clips of video from Capitol monitoring video cameras in a different Jan. 6 case–one clip of which was tweeted out by press reporter Ryan Reilly:
Ahead of the detention hearing for Capitol accused Robert Morss at 4 p.m., the federal government has actually launched a variety of videos (thanks to push from the media union). Here’s some video from inside the tunnel fight that includes some familiar faces: pic.twitter.com/emYSrNJBt0

As the July 21 movement from journalism Union legal representatives mentions:
The 4 Capitol monitoring video launched in the Morss case portray activity in the tunnel causing the Lower West Balcony doors to the U.S. Capitol. See Gov’t’s Mem. in Supp. of Pretrial Detention at 12-17, United States v. Morss, Dkt. 80.
The Video at concern in this case, according to Offender Anderson, illustrates activity in the very same specific area.
See Mem. in Supp. of Def’s Oral Mot. to Get Rid Of Classification of “Highly Sensitive” from CCTV Video at 2, Dkt. 24. In truth, the Video at concern here illustrates occasions that took place in the Lower West Balcony tunnel at roughly 2:53 PM, see id., while Display H from the Morss case illustrates occasions that took place
, at roughly 2:57 PM, see Gov’t’s 3rd Suppl. Mem. in Supp. of Pretrial Detention at 4, United States v. Morss, Dkt. 91 (describing Display H).
Here’s another clip in the very same tunnel, utilized as a DOJ display in other case, tweeted out by another press reporter:

The absurdity and disingenuousness of the feds’ “mosaic theory” reasoning for reducing the Anderson video grows ever more obvious.
Free the Anderson tapes!
